Although I haven’t had a proper meal here, I did buy some chips as a lunch treat. To my disappointment they were very dry, must have been under the hot plate too long. I hope that they are better next time, maybe just bad luck.

This is always busy and the owner has an excellent memory as he was taking order after order and when ready called you over. Excellent fish and chips.
